I think that Boar's Head has one of the nicest paint jobs out there. I'd love to do a race car in that scheme. Maybe add a cooler for some cold cuts.

I'm kind of a sucker for black and gold livery, even though I loathe gold.

Rich Energy tease with Black & Gold livery for Haas ...

I've always thought the Love's tanker trucks are very distinctive, and the bold colors would work well on a race car

You need to enter the Boar's Head race car in the same events as Team Sahlen for a built in rivalry. Hot dog vs cold cuts on track battles!

The one downside of banning tobacco sponsorship is we lost one of the best livereis of all time.  Clean and simple.Image result for mclaren mp4/4

I loved the pre Silk Cut TWR Jags in BRG, much better than than the Group 44 cars to me.Image result for jaguar xjr-6

Another simple F1 livery, the dark blue and gold Wolf WR1

And while far from the biggest Ferrari fan, who can not love Rosso Corsa

Ferrari "livery" is just a bucket of red paint :) Might as well also vote for BRG, or German silver/white. But you're dead-on about Malboro. So good.

I'm partial to a well-done Martini, as everyone knows. And you could do a book on the variations. Heck, I've got a book with a chapter about the variations.

Hot take: Gulf is not really that good a livery. It's just really easy to copy and it's associated with some excellent cars.

Tepid take:  The Gulf livery isn't bad, it's just overplayed by club/vintage racers, plus SEMA builds using it as lazy shorthand for "serious race car."

Gulf livery works on classic, curvy race cars, not on angular modern stuff.  It's also been played out by being plastered on everything from Hummers to Harleys.

Get rid of the baby blue and go vintage Gulf.
